But…

But the Pope… But the Bishops…. But liturgical abuse…. But the latest scandal….. But he… But she… But they….. But I……. But the__________. (enter complaint du jour here)

 

1 Corinthians, chapter 13

If I speak in human and angelic tongues* but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.aAnd if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.bIf I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.c

* Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,dit is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,eit does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.f

* Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.For we know partially and we prophesy partially,10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.11 When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. 12 At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.13* So faith, hope, love remain, these three;h but the greatest of these is love.

O Key of David


20161124_1antiphons

O Key of David,
opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom:
come and free the prisoners of darkness!

O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel: qui aperis et nemo claudit; claudis et nemo aperit: veni et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris et umbra mortis.

Language Of Our Faith


1_nNxybrXr-YPikYvaXyDbkQ

Pondering:

“If I speak in human and angelic tongues -but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.” – 1 Corinthians 13:1

Our faith is like a language the soul must learn. The ultimate language of Love. IF it is not “spoken” at all times, it becomes a broken language, mixed with our own, which express some Word but not fully.

If it is not “spoken” in the home, it is not being practiced.  If it is not “spoken” at work, it is being forgotten and not shared. If it is only spoken for 45 minutes on Sunday, then one is not interested in becoming “fluent” in Love, and simply not applying what is needed to speak and live it fluently. And all the times it is UNSPOKEN, opens the door to the soul for sin and separation from our Lord.
